The location is probably the best in Pisa. It's such a shame the hotel hasn't seen any investment. It is tired and very basic. The beds creak and the air con sounds like a torrential rain storm. We weren't sure if breakfast was included as no one bothered to tell us. There is a breakfast room however with a great... More

Was in Pisa this week for one night and I'm glad that I didn't have to stay in this hotel any longer. The location couldn't be any better. Only a few meters from the leaning tower of Pisa. Internet is available in the lobby only and tv is the usual Italian satellite. But that's where the good stuff ends. The... More

The location of this hotel is amazing. It is literally right next to the Leaning Tower. Yes, there is noise, as it is right non a direct entrance to the tower area, but that is to be expected. Our room overlooked the street with the amazing view of the tower, just to our right. Our room also had A/C, which... More

1 minute walk from the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the room was clean and tidy, has all you need and nothing more. Was very noisy, but that's understandable due to the location. Staff were quite unpleasant; at night, the front desk attendant was rather rude and impatient. The next morning, the person at reception made a mistake, charging us for... More

The shower wasn't closed off so the floors get quite wet. The room is simple but has all the things needed. From our window we could see the tower and people watch which was great! I don't think they supply breakfast and it's quite far from the train station but they do have a stop right outside served by 2... More

We paid £56 for a basic room with no air conditioning and stayed one night before we moved to Florence. Oh how I missed the air con! Aside from that if you expect an old fashioned hotel with more of a hostel/very tired feel to it, but right next to the tower, then you won't be disappointed.

We stayed here only one night and from the outside this hotel is very amazing. It is right next to the square where there is the Tower. But inside it is not so nice and cosy. Our room (74) was extremly noisy. The breakfast was OK but they don't have a variaty of foods and drinks. If you want to... More

Stayed at the hotel this may. The location is absolutely breathtaking. Seeing the tower from our window was fantastic. You need to go knowing that the rooms are a little basic and the furniture is a little old fashioned, however this added to the rustic Italian charm for us! Lovely fluffy towels, clean room, flat screen tv (if you have... More

This is the closest hotel to the Leaning Tower; it is a stunning location. The standard of room is poor, more like a cheap B&B than that which the location deserves. One could expect the noise from outside to be loud, but unfortunately the internal noise was worse. Every door bangs, corridors echo, and your bedroom activities are are broadcast... More
